Apple’s wholly-owned subsidiary Beats has launched an all-new Beats Solo Pro range. Effectively the Beats Solo 4, the all-new design also brings improved audio performance as well as active noise cancelling to the Solo line for the first time.

Beats has introduced the sequel to the Beats Solo 3 Wireless on-ear headphone range. However, to mark the all-new design, the new range is called the Beats Solo Pro instead of what might otherwise have been called the Beats Solo 4. In addition to the sleek looks, there have been substantial improvements and feature additions to the new range.

The undoubted highlight among the new features is the addition of Beats’ proprietary Pure Adaptive Noise Cancelling (Pure ANC) that has been taken from the Beats Studio 3 Wireless and adapted for the on-ear design of the new Solo Pro. It adapts to everything from fit, leakage caused by air, earrings, different ear shapes and movement of the head.

When activated with the push of a button, a related feature dubbed Transparency uses the external mics to allow environmental noise to blend with music so talking with friends, for example, while listening to music is possible. As with any Beats headphones fitted with Apple’s W1 and H1 wireless chips, audio sharing with friends is also possible. Battery life has also been given a substantial boost with the new model rated at 22 hours with Pure ANC or up to 40 hours without.

The Beats Solo Pro are available in black, ivory, gray, dark blue, light blue and red. Pre-order is available today through apple.com for US$300.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
